Km 286

In September 2005 fuel was $1.75 per liter (gas & diesel) here, but this was in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when gas prices went a bit nuts.
If you're heading east and don't want to stop at Mirage Outfitter for fuel, it is 592 km to the end of the Road at km 582 and back (without 4-wheel drive), or 760 km to the end at km 666 and back (4-wheel drive required).
If you're heading west this is the last fuel available on this road, until you reach the James Bay Road and then drive either north or south. If you're heading west and then north to Radisson, the next fuel is 362 km away. If you're heading west and then south the next fuel is 449 km away at km 381 of the James Bay Road.
